So, I am only on level 2, so maybe I am getting a bit ahead of myself here, but… I felt like I just had to ask this. (just advanced to level 3, but still have some vocab from level 2 to complete)
Why does 中 keep appearing in sentences that seem to have nothing to do with the work. For example, 「チャット中」<- why does it need to be there? Does it need to be there? I saw it on Facebook Messenger. A similar thing happened with the example sentences for 中(なか). It really confused me as the English equivalents didn’t include any of the translations for the vocabulary/kanji.
Also, Jisho (the site I use for checking translations, readings, uses, etc) didn’t return anything for the quoted example above, so I don’t believe it’s a single word at the very least. Again, do correct me if I am wrong. <3
Perhaps it’s some grammatical thing? I am not too sure how to search grammatical rules up, so I didn’t know what to do to find the answer, hence why I came here. I am going to be starting my grammar studies tomorrow, or Monday at the latest. I’m looking forward to learning more about the wonderful language.
Thanks to anyone who helps me out of this problem. I’m probably just getting held up on something that’s explained later on, but… Yeah. Anyway, I am just waffling now. Have a good day/night. I’ll read any responses tomorrow as I need to sleep. Happy learning!
